Couple months ago this started happen on my android tablet. It goes dark then starts flashing with lines and strips typically black grey and white but sometimes the colors of something I'm on but the lines vary in size. The only way to help it (for a small among of time) is to punch the screen. But now there is a green and black line with smaller strips seeping down my tablet. It keeps get bigger. Please help me. Also one other thing helps, placing my tablet above my head.

Punching the screen is likely to damage it further. There's not a lot you can do with tablets especially if its a hardware problem.

I would be inclined to back up any data from it and do a reset. what make and model tablet?
